If there’s one item you need to invest in this Summer, it’s the boho blouse. Flowy, festival-y and all round pretty, it’s the one piece you need to truly nail the over-riding 70s trend.
If you’ve been reading The Daily Luxe for a while now, you will know that beach boho is practically my middle name. So surprise, surprise…I’ve got yet another dippy-hippy look to share with you! Predictable? Me?
Today, I show you how I styled my blouse and share my top styling tops on how to rock the boho blouse!
Don’t be afraid of shapes
The best thing about boho chic is the chance to try out flowy, flouncy and retro shapes. Embrace the chance to try something different and opt for a boho blouse with flares, pleats or peplums. As long as you are sticking to one statement boho piece, nothing is too much!
Balance it out
Balance out all those pretty pleats and shapes with plain denim shorts. Although the phrase ‘boho chic’ may make you want to don frilly gypsy skirts and headscarves and skip down the street declaring the beauty of nature, this will result in something that looks like a bad costume.
Make it a statement
Although some may suggest to go with either a boho shape or print, I suggest you do most. This boho blouse is a happy medium, with luxurious, folk style embroidery.
Flares, flares, flares!
Newsflash: Flares are such a thing at the moment. Rock two boho chic trends at once with flared sleeves and nomadic prints.
Denim Is A Beginners Best Friend
If you’re too shy to go full on dippy-hippy-maxi-dress, a simple top and denim combo is an easy and simple stepping stone into the boho trend.
Go For Embroidery
Boho chic may be all about the undone, but you still want it to look expensive. Subtle embellished details such as beading, crochet or embroidered will make your boho blouse look more exclusive designer and less Primark reject.
Coins, ethnic embellishments and lashings of color, opt for boho jewellery in all its hippy glory. With a high-necklined blouse, such as this one, statement earrings are complimentary, without taking away from the pattern of the top.
Find somewhere beautiful & get lost
A boho blouse is made for wandering. So grab yours, get outside and feel that breeze blow through your hair!
